Your best friend has decided to get hitched, and as his Best Man, it’s your responsibility to throw him a bachelor party he won’t soon forget. Honor the groom-to-be with memorable activities, events, and luxury accommodations. Of course, your number one goal should be to have as much fun as possible. Los Angeles is the ultimate spot for an epic bachelor party. Need ideas to add to your itinerary? Here are some suggestions.
Know the Groom
Truly knowing the groom can make a significant difference in the party planning process. When considering what activities to do during the party, consider the groom’s likes, dislikes, and overall personality. Of course, you will also want to include some elements of surprise, like a trip to the groom’s favorite nightclub, bar, or sports game.
Reserve a Room
Failure to reserve a hotel room in time can really put damper on a bachelor party. In Los Angeles, suites in the best hotels go fast. You’ll want to ensure that the groom has a clean and comfortable hotel room to go back to at the end of the day. If possible, get a hotel that can accommodate all of the bachelor party guests and has extra perks, such as a bar, pool, and room service.
Invest in Transportation
If you’ve never been to Los Angeles, it’s important to know that traffic is chaotic. If you want to skip the stress of trying to navigate through the busy streets, invest in a chauffeur-driven luxury vehicle, such as a limousine, SUV limo, or party bus. Have the car pick you and the other party guests up at the airport and bring you to your hotel. With a car on call, you’ll also have the benefit of not having to find a designated driver.
Have an Adventure
If the groom is an outdoorsman, you may want to consider planning an outdoor excursion for your group. For an adventure-packed weekend, choose activities that will allow the groom to conquer his fears and face new challenges. Sail to Catalina Island and go snorkeling, hike to the highest peak of Mount San Antonio, paddleboard around Balboa Island, or shove off from LA Harbor to enjoy zip-lining, wildlife, and water sports.
Call for Dinner Reservations
It may be a bachelor party, but that doesn’t mean dinner should come from the Taco Bell drive-thru. Put some effort into dinner arrangements and choose a high-end sit-down restaurant where your group of guys can sit back and relax before the partying continues. Just be sure that the groom doesn’t end up paying any of the bill.
Grab Some Drinks
Warm up for a night of partying by heading to an LA bar for a few drinks following dinner. Some of the most popular bars require a reservation to get in, so be sure to do your research before showing up. Try not to drink too much too early in the day, or you could wind up overly inebriated before the night even begins.
Take a Break
While you may want to keep the party rolling from morning until night, be sure to take some breaks during the day so that everyone can rest up, especially the groom. The best time to rest is before heading out for the night, preferably after dinner but before hitting up the nightclubs.
Visit a Local Club
Los Angeles is not lacking in the nightclub department. Take the time to visit a local nightclub or two to enjoy some drinks and dancing. If possible, reserve table service which will get you a private table for your group, bottles from the bar, and a personal server who will get you whatever you need throughout the night.
